The only two references to Snyder and Orlovsky in an index to the Literary History of the Beat Generation classes is one on Sndyer (28 June 1977, tape 1), and one on Peter Orlovsky (23 June 1977, tape 1). These tape for all of Allen's classes in this series were sent to Barry Miles in the mid-nineties, as a book contract had been signed to turn these lectures into a book (which never happened). Since Miles was responsible for transcribing these, they were not included in the project to transcribe Allen's classes from 1974-1983. Some of these "Literary History" tapes, if I remember correctly, were damaged or under-recorded and unintelligible, and perhaps Snyder Orlovsky were covered in tapes that no longer survive. If you want to hear Ginsberg on Snyder and Orlovsky, I recommend a series Allen produced for KGNU radio in 1982, in preparation for the upcoming Kerouac conference.

There were recorded and produced by Len Barron for KGNU, and they were commercially available through Wind Over the Earth way back in 1982. I have a set at home if you can't find them in the archives.
